Academic Advising

Academic advisors are here to help you create your adventure at the Ivy College of Business. Whether you want to start a business, work for a non-profit, travel the world or need help choosing your major, they have your back.  

  • Undergraduate students: Your advisor will help you create your graduation plan and keep you informed about scholarships and experiential learning opportunities. They are conveniently located in 1200 Gerdin Business Building, next to the main lobby, which we call the Granite Hallway.
  • Master’s students:  Whether you’re a full-time graduate student or a busy professional seeking a higher degree, the advisement team at the Graduate Programs Office is here to help you every step of the way. Contact them by email at busgrad@iastate or stop by 1420 Gerdin Business Building.

Whether you’re an incoming freshman or an experienced graduate student, the Ivy College of Business Communications Center staff is here to help you succeed in your education and prepare you to seamlessly transition from academia to industry. They are conveniently located at the top of the stairs on the second floor, in 2148 Gerdin Business Building. Let our highly trained communication coaches help you refine your skills and build your confidence.  

At Ivy, our approach is unique. Each professional career coordinator focuses on one discipline – yours. If you’re a marketing major, your career coordinator is someone who specializes in all things marketing. Finance majors get expert guidance from our finance career coordinator, and so on.  This gives you an edge. You’ll be connected with an expert in your field, someone who knows the most important details about that industry, someone who has the best connections. With the help of your career coordinator, you will meet a new network of people to help you find your path and make your impact. It’s never too soon – or too late – to get started. 
 

As a graduate student, you understand the importance of making connections with employers. That’s where we can help. Graduate Business Career Services offers two major areas of service: 

  • Comprehensive career management services to graduate business students enrolled in the MBA and the specialized master’s degree programs. 
  • Partnership with hiring managers and employment recruiters to facilitate recruitment and hiring of our outstanding graduates and internship candidates. 

We are proud of our nationally ranked graduate programs. Together, we work with you, employers, and alumni to foster positive and productive recruiting relationships.
